Recent Questions Vertical Rollover Tree Menu CssQ:
I am curious why there are no font settings for "Individual Styles" for"Submenu styles".
Basically I want to have a different font and color for my submenu items so they appear differently than the normal primary Items - but it seems there is only two options for fonts:
- The global font parameters affecting all fonts (primary and sub).
- And the Individial Styles for primary Item Styles.
Why no font paramenters for Submenu Items? A: You can assign Item Style for the submenu item too.
See the example:
var itemStyles = [
["fontStyle=normal 13px Comic Sans MS"], //item style 0
var menuStyles = [
["Product Info","", "default.files/icon1.gif", "default.files/icon1o.gif", , , "0", , , ], //item style 0
["||How To Setup","testlink.html", "default.files/icon6.gif", "default.files/icon6o.gif", , , "0", , , ], //item style 0
I have managed to insert a separator in a menu and set the image path but the separator image does not show.
Is there anything else I need to do? A: Please, see the following parameters:
//------- Separators -------
You should set a separator in the menuItems, for example:
var menuItems = [
["Home","index.cfm", , , , , , , , ],
["About Us","about.cfm", , , , , , , , ],
Please could you tell us how to correct this. A: See, transitional effects (shadow) are features of Internet Explorer 5.5+ only.

I am intersted in a horizontal drop down menu.
I need the rollover and selected color of each section in the onmouseover drop down menu to be a different color.
Here is my scenario
link1 link2 link3
All links are white.
On rollover, link1 turns red, and the drop down below is red (if possible can each individual link in the the dropdown rollover to a diffrent color, say pink?)
When you click a link in the link1 dropdown, and go to that page, link1 will now be red (highlighted) while on that page, and link2 and link3 are still white.
Now, On rollover, link2 turns blue, and the drop down below is blue(if possible can each individual link in the the dropdown rollover to a diffrent color, say light blue?)
When you click a link in the link2 dropdown, and go to that page, link2 will now be blue, and link2 and link3 are still white. I also need the flyout menus to be able to be different widths. Say the drop down menu under link1 has short links, then it only needs to be 100 pixels wide. If the sublinks under link 2 are longer, its dropdown menu might need to be 200 pixels wide. In other words, the flyout width needs to be flexible to fit the length of the text in the link.
I have tried other programs, but have found none that can do this. The problem seems to be they cant have different width flyout menus (often this is the case if they are css based).
It is not possible to show a 'up' or highlighted color on a main link when you are on a page that is a sublink)
To use different font colors for the main items you should useIndividual Item styles. And to cerate different color and differentwidth of the submenus you should use Individual Item/Submenu styles.
See the attached example.zip. See how you should use styles.
> I also need the flyout menus to be able to be different widths.
Actually the submenu width is depend on the item's size. You can alsowrap item's text. Set var noWrap=0; or use standard <br> tagsinside items' text:
["|very long text <br> in Item 14","", "", "", "", "", "3", "1", "", "", "", ],
You can set exact width for each submenu using IndividualSubmenu Styles.

Try to do the following things:
- delete var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, forexample:
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">onmouseover drop down menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)
Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.
But notice, to use dm_ext_setPressedItem() you should know ID of selected item and subitem.
You can't get this ID after you reload your page. That is why you should write your own code on PHP.
